Wearable X

Wearable X

Wearable X is a Global wearable technology company that operates on the cross roads of fashion and technology with a functional design aesthetic. Our focus at Wearable X is to create products that enhance the human experience. By combining traditional design with the latest software, our focus is to integrate technology seamlessly and transparently into everyday life. We create customer focused products that are unobtrusive and functional. From delivering innovative wearable technology solutions, to identifying target audiences and their needs, we manufacture ready products that solve for both design and technical challenges.

The common denominator of our products is the integration of haptic technology that helps people stay more connected with themselves, the people around them and their surroundings. By using the skin as an interface, WearableX builds products that takes us away from our mobile phone screens and allow us to communicate in a new way. Through haptic vibrations.

Wearable X has previously secured partnerships with major sport leagues like the NBA and the NFL and are currently branching out into other sports.
